Mobile Person-to-Person Payment System

A mobile payment platform and service provides a fast, easy way to make payments by users of mobile devices. The platform also interfaces with nonmobile channels and devices such as e-mail, instant messenger, and Web. In an implementation, funds are accessed from an account holder's mobile device such as a mobile phone or a personal digital assistant to make or receive payments. Financial transactions can be conducted on a person-to-person (P2P) or person-to-merchant (P2M) basis where each party is identified by a unique indicator such as a telephone number or bar code. Transactions can be requested through any number of means including SMS messaging, Web, e-mail, instant messenger, a mobile client application, an instant messaging plug-in application or “widget.” The mobile client application, resident on the mobile device, simplifies access and performing financial transactions in a fast, secure manner.

Method and system for identifying the identity of a user

The present invention describes a method and system for verifying the identity of a user of a first terminal in a communication system having at least a communication network (NET), a first terminal (DTE) associated with the communication network (NET) and a service provider (SP) associated with the communication network (NET). In the method, a first logical channel is set up via the communication network between the first terminal (DTE) and the service provider (SP). The user of the first terminal is identified after the first logical channel set up via a second logical channel other than the established first logical channel between the service provider and the first terminal prior to providing any services to the caller.

System and method for real time video production and multicasting

An integrated, fully automated video production system provides a video director with total control over all of the video production devices used to produce and broadcast a show. Such devices include, but are not limited to, cameras, robotic pan / tilt heads, video tape players and recorders (VTRs), video servers and virtual recorders, character generators, still stores, digital video disk players (DVDs), audio mixers, digital video effects (DVE), video switchers, and teleprompting systems. The video production system provides an automation capability that allows the video director to pre-produce a show, review the show in advance of “air time,” and then, with a touch of a button, produce the live show. In one embodiment, the invention provides a video production system having a processing unit in communication with one or more of the video production devices. The processing unit also records the show or elements from the show following its production. The show or elements can be recalled for subsequent broadcasts. An Internet interface supports live or on-demand requests for content from the video production. In an embodiment, an online user selects specific. elements and reorganizes the elements to personalize a broadcast. The processing unit receives and executes the online request to continuously stream or download the content to the user. In an embodiment, various supporting features enhance and extend the content of the video production, such as real time polling, hyperlinks to related web sites, video captions, and the like.

Method and system for assessing, managing, and monitoring information technology risk

A method for information technology and information asset risk assessment of a business relationship between a client and a third party. The method includes establishing a database. The database includes a plurality of IT information risk factors stored in the database are associated with certain risks the client may be exposed to based on an action the client follows or based upon who the client uses as their third party provider. The database is configured to receive IT risk information. The IT risk information is associate with the plurality of IT information risk factors. The database is also configured to receive updated risk information for storage thereon. The method includes receiving risk information corresponding to the subset of relationship risk factors. The method continues with generating a relationship risk score. The relationship risk score is determined in response to evaluating the subset of relationship risk factors using the IT risk

Audio distribution and production system

A data file delivery system is provided having, at a head end, a production subsystem which communicates with a delivery subsystem via a local area network, ISDN connection, and the like. The delivery subsystem communicates with an affiliate subsystem, at a tail end, via a satellite link, ISDN link and the like. The production subsystem enables a producer to create audio events which represent sequences of audio which are played to completion before another audio event occurs. Audio events are stored as audio files. Each audio event may include one or more of an audio sequence, text information, delivery instructions, and an attribute list having contact closure information and the like. Optionally, multiple audio events may be assembled at the production subsystem to form a play list. The audio files are transferred to the delivery subsystem. The delivery subsystem places the audio files in delivery envelopes and transmits the envelopes to the affiliate terminals. In addition, the delivery subsystem may transmit live audio and related contact closure information to the affiliate terminals. The affiliate terminal may be located at a user site. The affiliate terminals may store these events on the hard drive, play the events in real time or pass events to other affiliate terminals. The affiliate terminal may later play stored audio events.

Method of converting free fatty acids to fatty acid methyl esters with small excess of methanol

A method for converting free fatty acids in acid oil or acid fat into fatty acid methyl esters is disclosed. The method involves adding a small amount of methanol and an acid catalyst to the acid oil or acid fat and subjecting the mixture to conditions that allow the fatty acid methyl esters to form. A lipid phase containing the fatty acid methyl esters and triglycerides can from and be separated from the rest of the reaction mixture. The lipid phase can then be subjected to conditions suitable for converting the triglycerides into fatty acid methyl esters. The method of present invention is especially useful for a process of generating biodiesel using a starting material of vegetable and animal oils and fats that contain a relatively high level of free fatty acids.

Absorbent articles that have wetness indicator graphics positioned thereon are disclosed, whereby the articles preferably include diapers, training pants, and adult incontinence products. The article includes a character graphic positioned in a waist region of the article, and a wetness indicator graphic that may be positioned in a crotch region. The character graphic is related to the wetness indicator graphic. The arrangement of the respective graphics preferably allow a caregiver to interact with a child to promote toilet training.

Prediction by collective likelihood from emerging patterns

A system, method and computer program product for determining whether a test sample is in a first or a second class of data (for example: cancerous or normal), comprising: extracting a plurality of emerging patterns from a training data set, creating a first and second list containing respectively, a frequency of occurrence of each emerging pattern that has a non-zero occurrence in the first and in the second class of data; using a fixed number of emerging patterns, calculating a first and second score derived respectively from the frequencies of emerging patterns in the first list that also occur in the test data, and from the frequencies of emerging patterns in the second list that also occur in the test data; and deducing whether the test sample is categorized in the first or the second class of data by selecting the higher of the first and the second score.
